    As my wife would say...

    "That sounds lovely, dear. Now...about those shelves you were going to put up."








    Actually, it's nothing like my wife would say.

    Looks awesome!
    The autonomy feature looks like in TATW is it basically the same thing?
    That woman wielded fear like a cleaver! Or did she wield a cleaver and make people afraid? I never get that part right...

    It is entirely possible that certain units have been - or will be - removed from the next release. There are a number of units that can be considered redundant, including some of the siege unit entries (it's not that the unit itself is pointless, just that there are duplicate versions, with next to no differences, that could be merged to free up space).

    Just compare Peasant Archers and EE Archer Militia - exactly the same stats except for cost.

    AWESOME!

    -would prefer more historically accurate approach to the Crusades and realizing that both sides had justification in fighting and that the Christinas really were threatened by Muslims at the time and not jsut the other way around...

    anyway other than that all of this is very cool +rep
    My sword may be rusty, my shield splintered and partially rotten, my armor has chinks and gaps, but my arm is still strong, strong enough for one more fight. Then perhaps God will have mercy on me, according to his great compassion!" -Me. Gregorius was a monk. I will be following in his footsteps.

    Maybe something like making crusades only possible for certain cities after they have been conquered by a non christian faction?

    And the Pope dont like to be handcuffed by anybody but Mrs. Pope
